Astronomy in a Shoebox

The core purpose of this project is to provide low income families which lack internet access with educational activities in different languages. A ‘shoebox’ or small, compact box will be provided with several activity sheets, instruction sheets (for adults), and a few basic art and craft supplies related to the activity. These boxes will be distributed at local food banks in the Greater Toronto area in Canada. It will provide families that chance to discover the wonders of space and astronomy, work together as a team and complete these activities.
